    Take the 2 hour excursion around Lac Annecy to see some spectacular mountain scenery and some lovely little villages. You can stop along the way and get the next boat. Trips leave from Quai de la Tournette.

    The Lake of Annecy is the second largest lake in France, after lac du Bourget, except for the French part of lac Léman (Lake Geneva).
    It is known as "Europe's cleanest lake" because of strict environmental regulations introduced in the 1960s. It is a popular tourist destination known for its swimming and water sports.

    The lake was formed about 18,000 years ago at the time the large alpine glaciers. It is fed by many small rivers from the surrounding mountains and from a powerful underwater source, the Boubioz, which enters at 82 m depth.

    It's very enjoyable to take a boat ride on the lake. Just walk down to the lake from Thoiu Canal and you will see the boats there with signs telling you when they depart. They also have dinner cruises.

    Annecy's Lake

    Lake Annecy is a pretty little lake with the magnificient Alps in the background. There are boat excursions available on the lake near the park.

    The largest building you see in the distance across the lake is the towers of St. Bernard’s Castle nestled in a vast park. This medieval fortress was converted into a baronial residence for the Menthon family. The direct descendants of this family have occupied the castle since the 11th century and continue to do so today. It sits about 11 kms from the center of Annecy. You can find out more at Annecy’s tourist office.
